HIP Magazine owner visits our Plumbing apprentices

Thursday 23 January 2020

On Tuesday 21 January, our college’s Plumbing apprentices and Plumbing Level 3 students participated in an engaging workshop, hosted by HIP Magazine.

Celia Matthews, Managing Director and Owner of HIP magazine, visited our students and gave a presentation on the magazine, which is the only dedicated national magazine for Plumbing and Heating students. HIP provides learning material to support lecturers, apprentices and students in the construction trades and this magazine covers a range of topics that they will find useful tips from pipe bending to installing underfloor heating. Celia tested the students' plumbing knowledge with quizzes and handed out prizes to the lucky winners.

Raj Johal, RuTC Construction Crafts teacher, said, “This was a great opportunity for students to learn about the wider plumbing industry and how they can get further involved through competitions and events run by HIP. HIP will continue to be involved with Richmond upon Thames College and Celia will be back to check on the progress of our apprentices at a later date.”

Last year, one of our Plumbing apprentices came second in the regional heat of the Apprentice of the Year competition, organised by HIP, and another student will represent the college again this year.
